The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has recommended significantly scaling back the Red Wolf Recovery Program by shrinking the already limited habitat range for wild red wolves, discontinuing release of red wolves into the wild, capturing red wolves from the wild on private lands, and placing captured red wolves in the captive breeding program.
Because of these recommendations, the 45 red wolves remaining in the wild face a very uncertain future.
You can help ensure that red wolves continue to roam in the wild and not be relegated to captivity. Please edit and send a message to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service supporting red wolf recovery efforts.
